Lighter, Stronger, Last Longer
We appreciate Greg of East Coast Dyes and his outstanding review of the Tri Kor Alloys shafts on You-Tube. In the ensuing years, we encountered many customers that used our shafts for a long, long time, often times spanning a player’s entire youth, high school, and college lacrosse career with many reporting 10 and 12 year runs using our shafts. We are also fanatical about our customer service and we have very much enjoyed interacting with our customers, solving problems and fulfilling warranty commitments in the rare instance of a break. Now, the tradition continues under the Tactical Alloys banner.
We utilize a proprietary alloy specifically formulated for Tactical Alloys lacrosse shafts. Using first principles of alloy design, we can achieve ultra-lightweight shafts for both the attack shafts and d-poles. Use your weapon wisely.
The unique blend of alloying elements and heat treatments form optimum strengthening phases so the shafts have just the right amount of flex and feel, ultra-high strength and durability. This combination yields the best shaft you have ever laid your sweat stained, dirty gloves on.
Tactical Alloys: “It’s all about the Alloy”
Tactical Alloys is building upon and evolving the popular and well proven “Sub-Series” product line. First and foremost, Tactical Alloys invents, develops and produces advanced alloys. This gives us a unique position in the lacrosse market as we apply our experience with military weapons, armor, firearms and other sports equipment to derive formulations
specifically for lacrosse shafts. Our Scandium alloy can withstand severe, explosive shock loading.
We design alloys, source the alloying elements, produce the molten alloy castings, extrude, draw and heat treat. Specific to lacrosse shafts, we then produce shafts with a unique finish and supply directly to the player, complete with our one-year warranty. Our competitors have to source their lacrosse shafts from suppliers and then ship to retail stores. We eliminate a couple of steps and take care of our customers directly.
Tactical Alloys Sub5Attack Shafts
As the original scandium alloy inventors, we derived an ultra-high strength alloy formulation to produce the Sub5Attack shaft with an ambitious two-pronged goal:
1) Produce the lightest attack shaft on the market at less than 5.0 ounces and
2) Provide an unprecedented one-year warranty against
breaking. We’ve done it.
Players report unbelievably fast stick skills and shot release, and the shafts last a long, long time. The finish is favored by youth and adult players as well as elite college and professional players.
Available in matte black and silver, $120 all-in (shipping and handling included), 12-month warranty.
Tactical Alloys Sub 13 Defense Poles
Years ago, we analyzed a thorough cross-section of defense poles on the market and found that most fall in the 14 to 15-ounce weight range. Then, we decided to make the leap: We made our d-poles less than 13-ounces. This gave defenders a new lease on life as they could actually feel the weight of the ball in their pocket. This was a real tipping point for players that, no matter how talented, used to have those embarrassing dropped balls with the heavier d-poles. It goes without saying that defenders also upped their game with rapid fire checks and even coast-to-coast shots on goal.
Available in matte black and silver, $170 all-in, 12-month warranty.
